The Roman Ensign on

Washington Soil?

It is probable that some SDA(s) will try to maintain that the planting of the Roman ensign (flag) on U.S. soil at the Capital, is parallel to the Roman legions planting the Roman ensign on Jewish soil in the spring of A.D. 66, and returning in A.D. 70 to destroy Jerusalem. However, that is not the parallel Ellen White uses. She parallels the Sunday law to the planting of the Roman flag on Jewish soil, so many furlongs from Jerusalem in A.D. 66. Testimonies, Vol. 5, 451, 464.


So let us not be tempted to make invalid parallels with the event of the Pope of Rome meeting with President Bush on the Whitehouse lawn on Thursday, April 17, 2008.
